_________________
In 1988, Ecumenical Patriarch Demetrios I  convened an International Orthodox consultation in Rhodes, Greece to explore the ministry and Ordination of women in the Orthodox Church. Notable among its concluding recommendations was the call to revive the female diaconate.  In honor of the 30th anniversary of this consultation, this event will summarize the history of the multiple calls for the revival of the female diaconate, discuss developments in more recent years and reflect on ways this important ministry can help build up Christ’s Church.
